why is it ...

... that the only foods we like to extremes are sour and hot? People love extra-sour candy. They crave super-hot dishes. Nobody asks for extra-salty anything.

... that the best part of Jell-O is the crust? You know, that super chewy rind on the edges?

... mean, hot chicks tease you with descriptions of delicious pie and decadent chocolate treats?

... that the person in front of you in the drive-through is almost always a dumbass?

... that there is only one Sunday in the week?

... that the one day you forget to put on deodorant, you find yourself in relatively close quarters with a hot chick or two?

... subordinates have to be such selfish pricks?

... that you can't just have one knob in the shower, that when you turn it, provides the perfect temperature water?

... toilets aren't more comfortable? It's basically a seat ... why are they so low to the ground and hard and non-ergonomic?

... when you lend people money on a Wednesday and they tell you they will pay you back on a Friday, they disappear on Friday and leave you hanging, until you have to call them and pester them to pay you back?

... that I'm still here?

woe be to vegetarians ...

God is sending a message: Eat meat.

First, it was E. coli in spinach. Sorry, Popeye, but the super-good-for-you green is suddenly deadly.

Hard to tell kids to eat their vegetables when the food might make them sick or kill them.

And now, carrot juice has poisoned four people in Florida and Georgia. Seems that botulism caused respiratory failure in three and paralyzed a fourth.

So much for being good for you. Beware vegetables, people.

Eat meat. It does a body good.


bad day ...

... work issues, which I can't discuss.

... have to take bike back (way to big for it).

... assorted other issues.

Fuckin' Bleah™

there's got to be something better than in the middle ...

When, exactly, did it happen?

I'm not sure. I have a general time frame. It's loose and by no means certain. Nothing specific, nothing concrete.

And why?

I sure as hell don't know, and probably never will.

Things are the way they are, and, like it or not, that's the way they will continue to be.

It happens sometimes like that.

One is left to wonder, to question.

And be left unanswered and unknowing.

ch-ch-ch-changes ...

Are desperately needed.

On many levels.

Sooner, rather than later.

Acknowledged. Accepted. Understood.

Time to act.

feeling a tad bit nosy ...

what am I doing up?

It's 6:45 a.m. or so and I've been awake for a good half hour.

On a Monday morning, no less.

What the hell?

I'm not even really all that tired or sleepy headed or anything.

And it's not like I went to sleep particularly early.

Well ... at least football is on ... ooh ... and golf!

• So I ended up going back to sleep for a little bit. LOL

Did you expect anything else?

Well, My Favorite Person did. She suggested a 30-minute morning walk.

As much as it hurt ... I had to let her down. It was way to morning for me. And it was pouring down rain. We're due for a week of heavy rain and thunderstorms; that time of the year.

And now, joy of joys, it's time for work. Fucking Bleah™.

the usual sunday golf post ...

It was really gray, raining and overcast when I woke up, but we decided to go ahead and play golf anyway. It did keep me from bringing my digital camera along, however, and I missed some very cool photos on account of that.

We played the STARTS Guam Golf Resort, which is located up north. First nine was the West Course, second nine was the North Course.

I started the front nine off well, but on the third hole missed a short par putt on a par-3 that led to three consecutive bad holes, but I did manage my second par a little later on to finish the front with a 48. Was off and on the first few holes of the back nine, then shot three consecutive pars to put myself in really good position for the last two holes.

After a perfect drive on the 17th hole, I was right in the middle of the fairway. Unfortunately, it's the only fairway that doesn't drain right on the whole course. It was muddy and wet. My 7-wood caught a shitload of mud and I ended up in the water, eventually taking a triple bogey. *sigh*

I did manage to shoot a 46 even with that triple and two other double bogeys on the back, for a final score of 94. Not bad for a course I haven't played in forever. Also, considering we couldn't drive on the course and had to walk out to all of our shots, I finished not feeling too tired or worn down despite a LOT of walking (thanks, slice!).

S was a little off and in the sand quite frequently. My godson A had some good smacks -- outdriving his dad on one hole! -- and was nearly automatic with all of his 3-foot and 4-foot putts — he made about nine of those, which is more than I made from that length. LOL

And now, it's about 5:30 p.m. I need a shower and then I think I'm going to do a little shopping for some stuff ... then home for a night of DVDs.
